Congratulations, Br. Vincent!

Br. Vincent Vivian, OFM Conv. made his Solemn Profession, in our St. Hyacinth Friary Chapel (Chicopee, Massachusetts), on July 16, 2022. Our Minister Provincial, Fr. Michael Heine, OFM Conv., delegated Fr. James McCurry, OFM Conv. (the former Minister Provincial) to receive Br.  Vincent’s vows and preside at the Mass. Fr. Mitchell Sawicki, OFM Conv. and Fr. Noel Danielewicz, OFM Conv. served as the canonical witnesses. Fr. Brad Milunski, OFM Conv. served as master of ceremonies for the Mass, which was attended by the many friars living and serving in the area, followed by a festive dinner. Keep Br. Vincent and all of our friars in joyful prayer.

Note: Friar Vincent 1st Professed Solemn Vows in 1970 and served in many capacities during his time as a friar of our province, including serving as a Missionary Friar. After a short period of time away, and having been approved for re-admission to the Order by the Minister General and his General Definitory, Br. Vincent was re-invested in the habit of our Order as a member of Our Lady of the Angels Province, on September 3, 2018, by then Minister Provincial, Friar James, during Mass in the Provincialate chapel.  At that time, he began the canonically required period of probation, professing his Simple Vows in July 2019.
